Soon to turn 115, Chinen may have lost a step or twelve, but she can still hit the occasional jumper and she will bring a LOT of veteran experience to the Celtics. The Lakers and the Cavs were also after Chinen, but she chose the Celtics after a phone call from Doc Rivers where Doc assured her that her playing time demands would be met. Doc was quoted as saying, "I'll just take some more time away from Perk." Doc likes to play the veterans and he's extremely thrilled about adding Michael Finley (who turns 37 this week) and Chinen today. "Whenever you can add 152 years of experience in two moves you have to like that," Doc said. Chinen will not be available for Friday's game in Philly, but should be in uniform for Sunday's home game versus the Wizards. She initially wanted the #114, but that is one of the 59 numbers retired by the Celtics, so she will wear #115 instead. Through her interpreter, when asked why the Celtics and not the Lakers, Chinen replied, "Kobe's a dick."

    It would've been better if you picked this lady, since she's actually a Red Sox fan and lives in New Hampshire:

    Oh come on, she's a week younger!

  4. tb727 says:

    I'm not surprised to see the Cavs in the mix. Figured they'd be in the mix for Finley too.

  5. JR says:

    Doc feels that week is invaluable

    I know but I can only imagine the hassle of going overseas to sign her. They had Ray in their backyard. Plus they could've given her Allen Ray's old number and not missed a beat.

    I'm disappointed in Danny and Doc on this one, for not going with the American...

  7. JR says:

    Landry could still be waived and Ray brought in as well. Don't lose hope TB.

  8. tb727 says:

    That's true. Landry definitely needs to be waived.

    But don't you think Chinen AND Ray is TOO old? I mean come on, 2 people on the roster from the 1800s? Combined they're like 330...

  9. Hilarious stuff JR.... and yes Chinen, Kobe is a dick!
